This week when i went to shop for weekly grosery i just found this and was so happy ...We both love it like any think.I will be happy to share different recipes out of this veggies in comming days.This is soft ,buttery vegetable which most of you might have already tasted.If not i say just run and grab some from your indian stores.There are various intresting dishes what we prepare like pakoda,white curry,sambar....and so the list goes on.For this cold winter i feel this suits well.Spicy ,creamy,chewy...hot..hmmm simply superb.
